IRVINE, Calif., May 12, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Universal Bioenergy Inc. (Pink Sheets:UBRG), a natural and alternative energy company, is in negotiations with several companies to obtain several multi-million contract awards and is in talks for the acquisition of several major oil and gas properties.

Its subsidiary, NDR Energy Group, is in final negotiations to close on more contracts to supply natural gas to several major public electric utilities that should generate millions of dollars in additional revenue for the Company. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, consumption of natural gas will increase 20% by the year 2030.

The Company's acquisition team is also in talks to acquire a stake in several gas pipelines that are used to transport natural gas from the wells in the oil and gas fields to the main pipelines in Texas. The combined value of those pipelines are estimated to be in the $10 to $25 million range, and should bring additional revenue, potential profits and asset value to the Company if those transactions are completed.

"We are very excited about these new transactions. As we win more gas sales contracts like the recent one with the $2.7 billion utility company in the Midwest, we need greater supplies of gas for our customers. This is in line with our growth strategy, our intent to create more revenue and focus on profitability this year. We have been working on some of these projects for several months to bring these to fruition. Management feels the acquisition of the oil and gas properties, assets and pipelines, will give us greater control over our supply chain from the wellhead directly to our customers. We believe our shareholders will receive a great benefit from these transactions and acquisitions when the deals are consummated," stated Universal's President, Vince M. Guest.
